Badges and fingerprint readers are reliable technologies but since a growing part of the workforce is equipped with smartphones (and forgets them less often than their badges), there's an opportunity to progressively switch from plastic credentials to mobile ones to access office buildings (and to pay for the canteen of course). Also, since mobile credentials can be delivered over-the-air, you could now issue them for trusted visitors instead of having them stay in lines at the front desk for the 2pm meetings.
The corporate world is not the only one that would benefit of seizing this opportunity: providing controlled and customized access permissions to access buildings, homes, areas, etc., is a challenge faced by many verticals: think of last-mile delivery, facility management, parking operators, accommodation-sharing, hotel check-in, real estate...
AIRKEYS is a technology that enables just that: to add centrally-controlled mobile credentials to controlled-access areas, in replacement or complement of physical keys, badges, temporary codes, etc. For better security, for better end-user experience, and for simplified management.
AIRKEYS consists of
Modular software components to plug into your access-control system and your mobile application (we can provide a customized application for mobile access if you don't have one yet)
A back-end service or API to interface with the application where you currently manage users and permissions
The software components handle the secure sign-in dialog between end-user smartphones and the access-control system (using BLE, ultrasound, or any local communication channel that is relevant for your use case). The back-end service manages the secure credentials lifecycle (issuance, change, revocation, audit).
